[hsflinux] Crash report on amd64, intel hda

I'm on Fedora 7 with 2.6.22 kernel and a similar amd64 hp
notebook(dv2315) and soundcard/modem. I can report similar behavior
on my machine. Most times it would hang completely with no mention in
the logs about the freeze up. On a couple of occasions the browser
would appear to be waiting and waiting. Gradually my system would
become unresponsive and fail. One these occasions there was a memory
protection fault in the log around the time of failure. 
The real adventure for me was uninstalling the driver. The uninstall
appeared to take, but pretty much hosed my sound system. Sometimes it
looked like it was working, but nothing came out of the speakers.
Other times the driver wouldn't load either at boot or manually. The
only solution was to rebuild my system from scratch which restored
the sound system. Unfortunately, I didn't keep the log showing the
memory protection fault. Sorry.

I don't know what to say about the modem issue. I'm pretty sure my
uninstall adventure was related to the alsa drivers and the fickle
nature of this soundcard with linux. In any event, I'm going to wait
for a new version of the driver before attempting to use the modem

Hope things smooth out for you.
